This is one of the first Trollope's I've read and it is still one of my favorites. Thank goodness we don't have to live by the rules of this age!

Oh, that Alice Vavasor. What. A. Ditherer.

A wonderful, big, sprawly novel. To me, it was not as immediately enthralling as The Way We Live Now, but once the Pallisers finally arrived, I was hooked.

Here are some of my favorite lines from the book--most from the first half of the book, though I found the second half a better read overall.

"People always do seem to think it so terrible that a girl should have her own way in anything. I haven't much of my own way at present; but you see, when I'm married I shan't have it at all. You can't wonder that I shouldn't be in a hurry."



"I'm not particular; and if you are ready for a little good, wholesome, useful hypocrisy, I won't balk you."



In this world things are beautiful only because they are not quite seen, or not perfectly understood.



But men and women, when they show themselves at their best, seldom do so without an effort.



"Does anybody ever drop their rich relatives?"



"I can hold my own; and as long as I can do that the world won't hurt me. No, Kate, if I think a thing's right I shall do it."



"Money's never dirty," she said, "nor yet what makes money."


"I have an old-fashioned idea that when a man has got a wife he ought to be allowed to keep her. Public opinion, I know, is against me."



Every man to himself is the centre of the whole world;--the axle on which it all turns.



"It can hardly be your desire to go through life unmarried."



It is a comfortless unsatisfying trade, that of living upon other people's money.



"Indeed! I wouldn't pick her out of a gutter with a pair of tongs."



There are many rocks which a young speaker in Parliament should avoid, but no rock which requires such careful avoiding as the rock of eloquence.



CHAPTER LI: Bold Speculations on Murder



Vavasor, though he did not love much himself, was willing enough to be the object of love.
